The Akai MPC One Music Production Centre is a standalone powerhouse based upon the legendary MPC but with a smaller footprint. Uncompromising in its creative experience the MPC One packs a tonne of features and workflow into a small unit designed to enrich your creative process.
Full MPC Experience
Despite its diminutive size, don't let that fool you into thinking the MPC is a lesser music production platform. From rich melodics to hard-hitting drums and infectious grooves these next-generation tools will act as a natural extension of your creativity so you spend less time hitting roadblocks and more time taking command of your production. With the same multi-core processor as the MPC X, the MPC One will handle the most demanding and complex tasks delivering a truly empowering hands-on experience. Edit and chop samples on the bright 7-inch touch screen colour display and express your ideas effortlessly with the dedicated knobs and touch keys that eliminate cumbersome drop-down menus.
The MPC One has all the functionality you'd expect with ease of use and no-nonsense workflow at the forefront. Four touch-sensitive controls and a large data decoder allow you to seamlessly map to critical parameters. Sixteen velocity and pressure-sensitive RGB pads give you excellent response for a fully expressive range that provides complete production capability. Drop the MPC One straight into your existing setup with connections for USB or live level 1/4-inch instruments. Control MIDI-enabled devices and CV/Gate modules and racks without the worry of compatibility issues.
Akai Professional have reimagined their MPC 2 Software to drive the MPC One in both standalone and controller modes with 128-track sequencing capability, real-time time-stretching, clip-launch functionality, advanced MIDI editing capability, VST Compatability in controller mode, operation as a standalone application on Mac & PC, advanced sampling & audio editing/recording functionality, seamless DAW integration, a redesigned GUI and much more. Free yourself from the computer or just add to your in-the-box setup, whatever you need the MPC One can do.
Splice integration means you have millions of high-quality, royalty-free samples, sounds, presets and loops to play with, covering every musical style. Natively embedded in MPC One, you get immediate network access to your own Splice library directly from the user interface. Not only do you gain access to this now industry-standard sample library, but the MPC One comes with its own drum sample and loop library of hard-hitting sounds from leading designers including RawCutz, Sample Tools by CR2, F9, Decap, MSC Sound Design and MVP Loops. Signature synth engines such as Electric, Tubesynth and Bassline as well as premium AIR FX for mixing and mastering.
The Akai MPC One Music Production Centre lets you experience the same powerful performance of the MPC but packs it into a smaller, studio friendly package. With this all-in-one unit, there's no limit to your creativity, allowing you to create mix and master wherever you are.
